DNA strand breaks in peripheral leukocytes after regular consumption of native or dealcoholized red wine. Amounts ingested daily for 6 weeks were 200 mL red wine (RW) or 175 mL dealcoholized red wine (DRW). Control subjects did not receive any study drink. TI0: Tail Intensity in untreated cells (endogenous DNA strand breaks); TI300: Tail Intensity in cells treated with 300 μM H2O2 for 20 min (exogenous DNA strand breaks)Boxes represent the distribution falling between the 25th and 75th percentiles, with the median as the horizontal line within the box. The whiskers connect the largest and smallest values not categorized as outliers or extreme values, which are represented by single data points. *Value different from baseline, P < 0.05 by Wilcoxon signed rank test.
